Should you Subscribe

At the upper price band of Rs 340, Chemcon is available at P/E of 25.5x on FY20, which is attractive when compared to peers. Considering healthy business performance, regular capacity expansions, strong customer base, expanding margin profile and improving outlook for the sector, we have a subscribe rating on this IPO,” Geojit Financial Services said. Its peers Aarti Industries, Vinati Organics, Atul and Paushak are available at P/E of 36.9x, 41.5x, 30.8x and 41.5x respectively.

Company has shown consistent financial performance with a strong financial position. Also, the specialty chemicals industry in which companies operate has high entry barriers Therefore, looking after all, we recommend subscribing the issue both for short & long term horizon,” said Hem Securities.

Chemcon’s revenue grew at a CAGR of 29 percent during FY18-FY20, EBITDA nearly 25 percent and profit 36 percent. It has a healthy balance sheet with stable cash flows, net debt is Rs 44 crore with D/E ratio of 0.3 in FY20.

The company’s expansion plans to set up two new plants and one laboratory with a total volumetric reactor capacity of 251.00KL, at existing manufacturing facility Manjusar, Vadodara, would significantly increase the capacity by 60 percent, total volumetric reactor at 625.85 KL. Also, it would enable us to benefit from economies of scale in the next few years. Fundamentally too, company looks sound with impressive ROCE & ROE at 37.92 percent & 34.23 percent for FY20, favourable debt-equity ratio and stable PAT & EBITDA margins,” said Rudra Shares while recommending to subscribe the IPO for listing as well as long term gains.

Choice Broking also advised investors to subscribe to the issue given the attractive valuations and positive fundamentals, but the promoter & promoter group’s corporate governance issue is making the brokerage cautious.

“The management has indicated that the company will not be impacted by any means, if the outcome of the appeal is not favourable. Also the specialty chemical sector got re-rated in the last 5-6 months. Before re-rating, the above peers were available at lower valuations. Thus considering the above observations, we assign and subscribe with caution rating for the issue,” it explained.

While subscribing the issue, investors have to consider some risk factors like outbreak of coronavirus; fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates; political, social, legal and economic changes; increase in raw material prices; geopolitical tension in the Asia region; delay in demand revival of oilwell completion chemicals as around 30-35 percent of revenue comes from oilwell chemicals; and around 59 percent of revenue (FY20) was derived from top 5 customers.
